What to look for in a long-distance moving company?
The first thing you look for in a long-distance moving company is an extended record of success. Look for moving companies with at least 10 years of moving experience. Rogue moving companies rarely last more than five years before they shut down and open up under another name. Ask friends and family members for recommendations of long-distance moving companies that have performed well for them. Check out on-line reviews, but remember that one or two negative reviews doesn’t mean the company is bad. Finally, compare rates among experienced long-distance moving companies with good reputations by asking for free quotes on the same move from each company.

American Van Lines makes it easy to figure out how much your interstate move will cost. Your knowledgeable American Van Lines reservations agent allows you to pick between two methods of calculating your long-distance moving costs:
- Binding long-distance moving offer. A binding bid represents an agreement to move your goods for a set fee. Your mover arrives at your cost after examining a list of goods to be moved you submit. You must agree to a bid for it to be binding.
- Non-binding long-distance moving offer. A non-binding bid requires your goods to be weighed before a final bill is issued. Your mover will provide you with an estimate of your cost, but the final cost is set after your goods are weighed.
Call your knowledgeable American Van Lines reservations agent for a clear explanation of your cross-country billing options. No matter which billing method you choose, you’ll get a free interstate moving estimate when you call.
How do movers charge for long-distance moves?
The cost of your long-distance move is based upon how many possessions you have and how far those possessions must travel to reach your new residence. The distance your goods must travel is easy to figure out. The amount of possessions you own can be determined in two ways: binding estimate or non-binding estimate. Your mover can produce a binding estimate after reviewing a list of goods you provide. People who know exactly what they want to move can benefit from a binding estimate. A non-binding estimate is for people who are uncertain about which items they want to move and request to pay by the pound. To establish the weight for your non-binding bid, your moving company weighs the truck at an official weigh station before adding your goods. After your goods are added, the moving truck is weighed again. The difference between the two weights represents the weight of your move for your non-binding bid.

How to move out-of-state on a budget?
The best way to move out-of-state on a budget is to reduce your list of possessions to the lowest amount. Whether you choose to rent a moving truck and move yourself or you hire a professional moving company for your interstate move, you save time and money by ridding yourself of items you don’t need or no longer use. Hold yard sales, donate items and just plain throw things away. Hold off on new major purchases until you move. Reducing your inventory of goods can save you major bucks. For instance, say you’re moving from Los Angeles, CA, to Austin, TX. You might pay a little less than $7,800 to move 10,000 pounds of goods the 1,380 miles between the two cities. If you reduce your amount of possessions significantly to 6,000 pounds of goods, you could save more than $2,200 on your interstate move from California to Texas.
Finally, your best tactic for obtaining the lowest rate from your cross-country moving company is to compare rates between companies that offer the same level of services. Find an interstate moving company that will meet-or-beat the best offer you receive, then start hitting the bricks for low offers. Work the long-distance companies against each other to grind them down to giving you their best long-distance moving rates available.

How do you move across the country successfully?
The secret to a successful cross-country move lies in the planning. You need to plan the packing of your household goods, their transportation across the country and their delivery to your new home. Then you can turn your attention to planning for the welfare of your family, and your pets, during the long move across the country. You’ll need to schedule rest stops, overnight lodging and your overall travel path. If you’re driving a moving van across the country, who transports your family vehicles? Unless you’re young, single and gung-ho, moving across the country on your own can be a difficult and costly chore. If you hire a moving company to transport your goods, all you have to worry about is packing your house and getting to your new location. You can drive your own vehicles, or even fly to your destination.
Moving across the country on your own also might not save you as much money as you think, even if something doesn’t break down during the trip. For instance, a cross-country move from San Francisco, CA, to Washington, DC, can be accomplished for less than $5,600. That’s for a one-bedroom apartment with 4,000 pounds of goods. A four-bedroom home weighing 14,00 pounds can be moved for less than $16,000. The two cities are more than 2,800 miles apart. Think about how long it would take you to drive your moving van that entire distance. A professional moving company could have your goods in Washington within a week.

How do you move furniture long distances?
You need a moving truck to move and a set of movers to move furniture long distances. The least-expensive way to move furniture long-distance is to rent a moving truck and get your friends and family to help out. You’ll need people helping you move your furniture both at your old residence and at your new place. Then you’ll have to return your rental truck. Don’t forget the favors you’ll owe after people help you move. The most efficient way to move furniture a long distance is to hire a moving company to transport your goods. Moving companies charge you to ship furniture based upon the total weight of the items and the distance they must travel. Ask your long-distance movers for their minimum weight requirement and their minimum rate. If your furniture shipment is below their minimum weight requirement for a regular long-distance shipment, your cross-country mover likely will charge you the company’s minimum rate for shipping goods.

How to pack for a long distance move?
The best way to pack for a long-distance move is to begin with the things you use the least. These also are the items most likely to be sold, donated or thrown away. Toss out as many things as possible to reduce the size of your long-distance shipment and save money. Begin with your storage locations, such as the garage, shed, attic and basement. You can initiate those actions a month or two before you even begin packing. Once you’ve tackled storage, start packing the spare bedroom, bathroom and living room. Leave the rooms you spend the most time in for the final two weeks of packing. Your kitchen is probably one of the most difficult rooms to pack, so don’t leave it for last. If you’re thinking about hiring someone to pack up your home, get them to help you with your kitchen items. Professional packers also can help dismantle your computers, take your TVs and framed pictures off the walls and pack your books. To avoid disruptions, leave the packing of your children’s toys for the final week. Remember to lay out enough clothes, medications and other daily needs for each member of your family during the trip. Lastly, keep a close eye on your laptop and other electronics, as they can easily get mislaid in the shuffling.
